I am simply speechless… Companies rarely do things like this and this is even more ballsy for a conservative company like RIM. RIM let us know that they have officially posted a BlackBerry PlayBook and iPad comparison video showing off how the PlayBook wipes the floor with the iPad in Web Fidelity. I am simply loving the fact that RIM posted this video and I highly recommend you check it out below:
The video has Matthew running through a series of comparisons between the PlayBook and the iPad (running iOS 3.2.2) comparing:
- the speed of the PlayBook Browser
- its support for rich Adobe Flash content
- and the performance of open web standards like HTML 5 on the PlayBook
Let loose on what you think in the comments! I want to commend Matthew for getting RIM to pull this off. It is about time that RIM stepped up to the plate. The iPad is the dominant tablet in the market with 95% market share so they are going to be compared to it anyways. This is the way to take control of the delivery!
